Hasler, Colleen Anne – We, the family of Colleen Anne Hasler, are saddened to announce her passing in the VG Site, QEII, Halifax on March 13, 2019 at 7:35 p.m. Born in Halifax, July 12, 1952, she was the eldest child of David and Loraine (Graves), Halifax. She grew up in Leiblin Park, Spryfield and was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church.
She was predeceased by her father, David; and is survived by her mother, Loraine; and siblings, David (Paula), Maureen (Larry) Smith, Michael (Mary Margaret), Mary, Susan, Dan (Tracey), Christa (Wayne) Ryan, Bill, Maria (Sean) McDonald; and a great many nieces and nephews.
Colleen worked for APSEA (School for the Blind) for most of her career, a job she dearly loved. She was then employed by the Halifax Regional School Board, as well as Metro Community Housing Authority. Having the great fortune of many friends she dearly loved them all; they were treasures to her. Her greatest love however was her God, who was her everything. She was a founding member of “The Day” music ministry which served the Atlantic Charismatic Conferences and was blessed to minister for Pope John Paul II on his visit to Halifax. She served on many resource ministries in the church and renewal. In her great love of scripture and contemplation she became a long-time friend and visitor of Notre Dame du Calvarie Abbey, Rogersville, N.B. She served in various ministries within the church, most notably as a lector. Her deep Catholic faith bore the fruit of loving kindness, and with her infectious laughter she drew many wounded souls to a closer relationship with her Savior Jesus Christ. She was a true and faithful friend to all.
We will wake Colleen at a visitation to take place in the basement of St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church, 6 St. Michael’s Ave., Spryfield, Sunday, March 17th, from 3-7 p.m. All welcome. The funeral mass will be held the following day in St. Michael’s Church, Monday, March 18th, at 2 p.m. Celebrant, Father Ronald Cairns, ConCelebrant, Father David, Deacon David Hasler.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
